Stonewheel, so what did you end up with? Pic's or a link would be helpful.- I wanted the best possible peripheral vision so I wouldn't feel boxed in. Now, the bad news - to meet my requirements, the best helmets I could find were all unfortunately mid/high priced, in the $400 range.
Gar you are just a plethora of information.CARDO SCALA RIDER seems popular on this site (ask Tony_Fury). Here is a bit of a write up on the subject: Motorcycle Intercoms - Radios - GPS - webBikeWorld. A buddy of mine has the Cardo scala-rider Q2 so he can talk to his wife who rides her own bike and also to get "emerg" calls from from their daughter when they are on road trips. With your phone and GPS in one unit its the ideal integration.
